These two sections are both excerpted, in order, from our rather lengthier earlier work:On The Wolves Of Rudra – The Terrific, Well-Storied Wolves And Wolf Forms Of The Indo-European Sky Father Lykeios - On The Wolves of Light and Lycia [ I ] λύκειος - Lykeios (more properly, 'Lukeios' but with an accented 'u') is … Continue reading On The Wolves Of Rudra – The Terrific, Well-Storied Wolves And Wolf Forms Of The Indo-European Sky Father [Excerpts, Parts 1 & 2 – Apollo Lykeios]

Apollo ‘The Three-Eyed One’ . . . ?

We were rather interested, just now, to read of Apollo's epithet of Τριοπιον - 'Triopion' Why? Because the name in question appears to mean 'Three-Eyed'. Now ostensibly, it pertains to an Anatolian town - and therefore Apollo Triopion is the Apollo of Triopion. Triopion having being founded by a figure bearing such a 'Three-Eyed' (Triopas) … Continue reading Apollo ‘The Three-Eyed One’ . . . ?

Three Nights’ Forbearance For The Ides of Hekate

Right, so due to an oversight on my part … we have missed the Hecatean Ides observance of mid-August. We shall endeavour to make up for this with some ground-breaking theology in the directions of Hekate (and Artemis / Diana … and a most pertinent further Indo-European Devinity) very shortly, in a subsequent (A)Arti-cle for … Continue reading Three Nights’ Forbearance For The Ides of Hekate

No, Śarva, The Archer Theonym Of Rudra, Is Not Of Non-Indo-European Origination

I am, it would appear, once again infuriated. This time, by that most frequent of annoyances, Academic Shenaniganry. Specifically pertaining to Lord Shiva. An associate had directed my attention to a recent work by Lubotsky that attempted to set out that a rather large and integral swathe of Vedic religion … was non-Indo-European. And was, … Continue reading No, Śarva, The Archer Theonym Of Rudra, Is Not Of Non-Indo-European Origination

On The Hellenic Propitiation of Sirius Wolf-Zeus In Order To Re-Bestow Life To The Natural World

With a storm sweeping in tonight, bringing much rain and wind, it seems only apt to present the following. This is a slightly reworked excerpt from the Wolves of Rudra piece - one of many elements that, whilst they could not be fitted in to the final version, are nevertheless integrally linked to what we … Continue reading On The Hellenic Propitiation of Sirius Wolf-Zeus In Order To Re-Bestow Life To The Natural World

On The Wolves Of Rudra – The Terrific, Well-Storied Wolves And Wolf Forms Of The Indo-European Sky Father

We begin to speak upon a theme most close to us - that of the Wolf Form, the Wolf Associations and Associates of Rudra … but also of the Indo-European Sky Father deific complex more generally. Now I state that it is a mytheme close to this author. I mean this quite directly - it … Continue reading On The Wolves Of Rudra – The Terrific, Well-Storied Wolves And Wolf Forms Of The Indo-European Sky Father

The Duality Of Light And Dark – A Modern Representation Of Indo-European Divinity

Alright, I can finally post this ! HC got back to me mid-week with the 'other half' of his conceptual piece. What he's chosen to illustrate here are two 'sides' or 'facings' to Indo-European Divinity - and I say Indo-European, because he's done a fantastic job of drawing together iconographic elements from multiple Indo-European cultures … Continue reading The Duality Of Light And Dark – A Modern Representation Of Indo-European Divinity

Of Artemis And Actaeon, The Wolf As Defender Of The Goddess – A Forensic Theology Examination Of A Classical Myth In The Vedas And In The Stars 

Many are aware of the broad outlines of the Classical instance of Artemis having Actaeon put to death. Roughly speaking - Actaeon commits an outrage against the Goddess's modesty, and so is turned into a deer and torn to pieces by his own hunting dogs. What few realize is that this particular story is also … Continue reading Of Artemis And Actaeon, The Wolf As Defender Of The Goddess – A Forensic Theology Examination Of A Classical Myth In The Vedas And In The Stars 

Astra – The Star Weapon Of Orion, Ardra, Rudra

Orion is remarkable. Whether the constellation, the Metallica instrumental, or the mythological figure(s) - there is something impressively resonant and incredibly enduring behind the name and figure. I'm currently working upon a 'Forensic Theology' effort to look at the actual underlying archaic Indo-European myth and the figures involved (particularly the Death aspect - and just what, … Continue reading Astra – The Star Weapon Of Orion, Ardra, Rudra
